'Explore' by Amy

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2018!

I hope the new year brings you brings you happiness and great adventures!

I have here a layout I made using Colour Sprays and Colour Embossing Powders. The photo in the layout is a selfie that my Joshua took of his feet when he was a mere 4 years old – how time flies!

To start this layout, I prepped my white cardstock with White Heavy Gesso
Using a straw with colour sprays I blew the ink around the bottom half of the paper. 

I used three colours here: Sunset and Caribean Colour Sprays and Sunshine Colour Shimmer Spray.
It is important to heat-dry each colour to prevent the colours from blending.

Once I was happy with the ink, using a permanent black ink, I randomly stamped the background with a patterned stamp – see close up picture here…


Once the background was complete, it was time to work on the title.

I found some chipboard in my stash. I love heat-embossing, as it provides a bold and bright look. I stamped a Versamark ink pad and the gorgeous Just Blue  Colour Embossing Powder. A craft heat gun on a low heat melts the tiny particles to give the finished product a glossy look.

After the preparations, it was time to adhere my photo to the page and embellish the layout.

I used various goodies, some from D-Lish Scraps and some from my stash.

The great thing that I love about Colour Blast sprays is their versatility. They can either be sprayed or painted, splattered or blown around on your page – so much creative fun!

Thank you for stopping by…

Ciao, Amy
